NBC Orders 'Ironside' Drama Pilot With Blair Underwood
ACCORDING TO THE HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM
NBC has picked up to pilot a remake of the 1960s drama Ironside.
Ironside follows tough, sexy but acerbic police detective Robert T. Ironside, who is relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting. He is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his handpickeded team to solve the most difficult cases in the city.
Blair Underwood, who toplined NBC's high-profile drama The Event, will star. Underwood's casting stems from a holding deal the two-time Golden Globe nominee signed in September.
